This report assesses Thailand’s corporate governance policy framework. It highlights recent improvements in corporate governance (CG) regulation, makes policy recommendations, and provides investors with a benchmark against which to measure corporate governance in Thailand. It is an update of the 2005 Corporate Governance Report on the Observance of Standards and Codes (CG ROSC). Good corporate governance enhances investor trust, protects minority shareholders, and encourages better decision making and improved relations with workers, creditors, and other stakeholders. Better investor protection can lower the cost of capital and encourage companies to list and raise funds through equity markets. It is crucial to protect retirement savings invested in listed companies. Good corporate governance also helps to ensure that these companies operate more transparently and efficiently.
